Reel To Reel: Killing Me Softly With His Songs

Featuring a Post-Screening Conversation with Songwriters Hall of Fame Inductee Charles Fox & Special Guests

Presented In Conjunction with the Songwriters Hall of Fame

The GRAMMY Museum and Songwriters Hall of Fame are thrilled to present a screening of the new film, Killing Me Softly With His Songs, followed by an intimate conversation & performance with songwriter Charles Fox and other special guests. 

Killing Me Softly With His Songs is a musical documentary about the life and work of composer Charles Fox, known for pop hits such as “Killing Me Softly With His Song,” “I Got A Name,” and “Ready To Take A Chance Again,” as well as iconic television show themes for Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, The Love Boat and Wonder Woman. He is also the composer of numerous salsa records, which are so popular internationally that it is a safe bet that even as you read this, someone somewhere is dancing to a Charles Fox mambo or pachanga.

The film follows Fox’s life and career from the streets of the Bronx, to his education at the Fontainbleau music conservatory near Paris where he studied with the legendary composition teacher Nadia Boulanger (who taught Aaron Copeland, Quincy Jones, Elliot Carter and Michel Legrand among many others), through his fabled career in Hollywood, and finally to Havana, Cuba where Fox “returns to his musical roots.” 

All of this is interspersed with some of the most phenomenal live music will ever experience – shot with a particular emphasis on capturing the joyous interactions of gifted musicians having a ball together. Featuring Anne Sila (winner of French version of The Voice), Common (Academy award winning composer and performer), A.J. Croce (son of the legendary Jim Croce, and a gifted artist in his own right), Henry Winkler (Happy Days, Barry), Paul Williams (Academy award winning composer), Rita Wilson (Actor, Producer), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld, and Tony Award winner), Alexandre Desplat (two-time Academy award winner and Alain Boublil (Tony award winning composer known for Les Miserable and Miss Saigon), the film is joyous, funny, poignant and above all intimate.  

The filmmakers describe Killing Me Softly With His Songs as A Musical Feast… with a Great Story! But however you describe it, this is a film that will make you want to dance
